During the second quarter of fiscal year 2012, the sales volume decreased from the prior year on reduced sales of mechanical instruments, partially offset by increased sales of transmitter products, sensor products, spares, repairs and development services. Net sales for the six months ended July 29, 2011 decreased $614,000, or 4.5%, to $13,130,000 when compared to $13,744,000 for the six months ended July 30, 2010. During the six months of fiscal year 2012, the sales volume decreased from the prior year by approximately $1.8 million on reduced sales of mechanical instruments and sensor products, offset by approximately $1.2 million of increased sales volume of repairs, spares, and other products, contributing to the net decrease of $0.6 million. Our revenues continue to be impacted by the ongoing recession in the business jet and general aviation markets.

For the quarter ended July 29, 2011, net loss was ($167,000) or ($0.04) basic and diluted loss per share, versus net income of $18,000, or $0.00 basic and diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended July 30, 2010.

Doug Hillman, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, stated: “We closed out the first half of the year by completing several operational improvements and completing the move of our Charlottesville repair station to Clearwater while securing the approval of customers to use these relocated testing capabilities. As noted last quarter, our plan was to complete most of these investments during the first half of the year, setting the stage for improved performance in the second half of our fiscal year. This has now been accomplished, and with our improving backlog we continue to move forward with a focus on execution and profitable growth.”
